Please join us for our April 30th meeting where
Ron KB1UMH will speak about:
"Software Defined Radio Reception using USB TV Sticks".

This presentation will demonstrate how, with low cost equipment, we can listen to analog and digital modes. These modes range from 50 MHz to -2 GHz. The presentation will cover basic installation on Windows, software packages available and some examples of what can be received (digital and analog). Also covered will be techniques for using an upconverter or direct-sampling for use on HF.

The unofficial supper meeting before the meeting is about 6:00 PM at UNO Pizzaria & Grill 155 Bear Hill Rd. Waltham. This is a great time to meet everyone and join in on informal conversations.
